Bestselling author Jeff Kinney appears at the Sinai Temple on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM to sign his latest book!
Celebrate the publication of Diary of a Wimpy Kid #11: Double Down with author Jeff Kinney! The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his “creative side.” As if that’s not scary enough, Halloween’s just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle. When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie…and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg’s troubles?
*Tickets available in-store at Children’s Book World (sorry no phone orders), online at the link, and at the event (subject to availability). Each ticket includes a copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid #11: Double Down, with a signing after the presentation. Additional Wimpy Kid titles will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

So please join us for a special Spooky Empire convention this December 2-4, 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
We are working very hard on getting the guest list together and should have some announcements this week. We are working hard on booking some of the guests that were to attend last weekend.
Anyone that has purchased advanced tickets for the October Spooky Empire, we are giving you two options…your tickets will be accepted at either the December rescheduled event OR the April convention (April 21-23, 2017) For general admission ticket holders, there is no notice necessary and tickets do not need to be re-issued, just bring your existing ticket with you to one of the two events.
If you are a VIP package holder, please contact us to let us know which event you’ll be using your VIP package for.
(Emails will be going out to all ticket holders within the next 24 hours)
Due to the rescheduling of this event, tickets are non-refundable. However, if you are unable to use your tickets for either of the two events, these tickets are transferable. They may be sold or given to someone that can use them.
EXHIBITORS AND TATTOO ARTISTS: Your booth space will be available to you for either December OR April. However, we do need to know ASAP so that we can plan the space accordingly for each show. Emails are going out to all of you as well.
For everyone that has supported Spooky Empire over the last week, you will not be forgotten!! Everyone that contributed will be a part of this event in one way or another. Your generous contributions will go towards the expenses associated with making this rescheduled event happen. We are forever grateful and humbled by everyone’s support, patience, dedication and generosity. This is truly a family! The thought of possibly having to close Spooky Empire for good was the worst possible outcome for us, and all of your support this past week made us realize we have to do whatever we can to keep moving forward!
Stay tuned for updates!
Thanks so much!
